Set in the Montreal city subway, this comedy short will have you laughing-out-loud. Filmmaker, Hala Alsalman pits Western garb against the niqab, asking which style of dress is more ethical, and answers this hotly contested debate with an unexpected twist.
Two very different women notice each other on the subway. Fascinated by their contrasting forms of attire, the strangers become entangled in a glancing game that quickly descends into a war of dirty looks. Meanwhile, another commuter has let his imagination take over while observing their exchange! Set in Montreal's metro system, THE GREEN LINE is a quirky silent film the way people judge each other based on appearances. It was officially selected at the 2012 Arab Film Festival as well as the 2012 Newport Beach Film Festival.
